The S4H Team has recently published a new research paper in the journal Earthquake Engineering & Structural Dynamics. The paper delves into the suitability of simulated ground motions in safeguarding monumental masonry structures.
Earthquakes, known for their devastating impact on both lives and economies, have prompted a significant quest for accurate seismic data, particularly in regions devoid of seismic monitoring stations or where strong earthquake ground motion records are lacking. This newly published paper addresses a critical gap in our understanding of how simulated ground motion records compare to real earthquake data in safeguarding historical structures. Specifically, the study centers around the structural response of heritage buildings to assess the effectiveness of simulated earthquakes in comparison to real seismic events.
